  • shawgab david (@shawgab) reported

    Accidentally invited someone to group instead of avoiding as teammate in Overwatch so I turned my PS4 off to avoid the issue

  • YorBrianna BriannaYor (@YorBrianna) reported

    @DFPsheikh My headspace here is this: I play Destiny because of the broken overpowered ****. Not because I need it but because it’s fun. If I wanted an esport experience I’d play Overwatch. This is how I want my fun I want cheesy, guilty pleasure, garbage.

  • kylemarham Kyle Marham (@kylemarham) reported

    @Oreoblack__ @gameheros235_ @IGN See also: Elder Scrolls, Dishonoured, Starfield, Doom, Fallout, Wolfenstein, Crash Bandicoot, Diablo, Guitar Hero, Overwatch, Prototype, Spyro, Evil Within, Quake, Rage, Gun, Skylanders, and so many more games that Xbox could choose to make exclusive.

  • Balelovski Balelovski (@Balelovski) reported

    @Dream_WaIker @XboxP3 COD wouldn't have died but it would've taken a big hit, something like Crash or Overwatch is huge on PS, but could bring a lot of people to Xbox and the hit on playerbase/sales wouldn't be as severe as COD. COD is in the same situation as MC, they gain more having it on PS.

  • DJK1NG_Gaming DJK1NG_Gaming - Ayakashi Triangle 🔥! 🇭🇹 (@DJK1NG_Gaming) reported

    @SoldierDelta @Stealth40k @BenjiSales uh no did you forget that Crash remake almost never came to Switch. Activision was against it til a developer proved them wrong about porting it which later brought other Crash and Spyro remakes. Overwatch was really the only thing that went through. Activision has nothing else

  • fibblewib Fibblewib (@fibblewib) reported

    @nextgensgamer @ModernWarzone Guitar hero Crash bandicoot Tony hawk (Some) call of duty games WoW Overwatch Spyro Let me guess, they're not "must play" because they've always been outside your comfort zone? You haven't tried them so they're bad? If you played variety you wouldn't need to ask.

  • ahaltacc Altahaccount (@ahaltacc) reported

    @MrBrakfast @iamalitayyeb Everything else on there is crap , diablo is an out of season april fools joke , overwatch is irrelevant , wow is for pc nerds . Crash and spyro are for kids

  • dxreaper120 DG (@dxreaper120) reported

    @ShanWinTheGod @GameSpot Because they don't see the bigger picture. They think they just acquired a single game but don't realize they also got Crash, Tony Hawk, Spyro, both warcraft and starcrft Overwatch, CoD and OW League pro and Amatuer, and COD alone brings in so much revenue just from microtrans

  • amzzz_06 Amy (@amzzz_06) reported

    COD is completely screwed at the moment so I'm not bothered about that, but it's Overwatch, Crash and Spyro I want to still be able to play 😔

  • JudaiMasters JuudaiMasters (@JudaiMasters) reported

    @XboxCult @kidsmoove @XboxP3 I'm not so sure. Overwatch 2 and Diablo IV sure as hell will be multiplatform since they already are announced as such. WoW, Starcraft, Warcraft are PC exclusive. Candy Crush is for phones. What exactly is Xbox getting out of this? Crash and Spyro?

  • Mcharejoo Mahyar Charejoo (@Mcharejoo) reported

    @XboxP3 To hell with COD! How about Overwatch and Crash bandicoot?

  • lilrizk Lil Rizky (@lilrizk) reported

    @DanStapleton I agree but there's also a certain interpretation of the wording "Honor all existing agreements" includes Warzone Then he goes onto say and "keep Call of Duty" on Playstation" he doesn't mention overwatch or crash bandicoot or diablo which fall under that existing agreement.

  • Proud2beGeechie The Notorious D.A.V.I.D (@Proud2beGeechie) reported

    @pushsquare Yes. I honestly don't play many of them. I play call of duty occasionally, I played Overwatch, and Crash Bandicoot 4. I could live without those games. I can live without those games. I prefer to play on my PS but I've got an xbox as well.

  • dylangentilcore Dylan Gentilcore (@dylangentilcore) reported

    @C0J0M0 Issue with COD is the yearly release cycle. @CarmelEsports has had CSGO, R6, Overwatch, Valorant, and Apex for years. We're adding Halo this semester. If COD comes out with a more persistent multiplayer that isn't a BR, then we've got something to work with.

  • NorthstarVZ Zay🩸🌈🎀🪶🏰😇⛲🌸🐾 (@NorthstarVZ) reported

    @Neena_Kawaii If this only happens with LoL/Overwatch/Dota, uninstall them, dunno why, i stopped playing those games just for that reason, i don't regret it tho this problem came back many times, i wasted money and time, i went through 5 ssd's and 11 sets of ram

  • thefiremaster22 Firesage22 (@thefiremaster22) reported

    @thicc_stick_boi I see Overwatch 2 and games like a new Spyro and Crash Bandicoot being for exclusives but you never know

  • StayXboxReady StayXboxReady (@StayXboxReady) reported

    @Guandi_Tofu I have to quit it then restart in order to restore connectivity. That’s the only online game that has that issue for me rn. When I play Overwatch I just open the app as usual and it signs me in no problem without the need to force quit

  • SNArt000 Safi (@SNArt000) reported

    @Blueknight_V2 Ah don’t get your hopes up honestly. If anything they’re gonna focus on mostly is COD, WOW, Diablo, Overwatch, stuff like that. Crash and Spyro are probably going to come last on their list but that’s just my opinion really lmao. But I mean they are allowed to make them all—

  • jamieharvey1252 shadow ninja (@jamieharvey1252) reported

    why make overwatch 2 when you cant fix the mess you made. how long until you make a massive mistake in the balance. it will die faster than overwatch cuz you have 0 idea what youre doing. @PlayOverwatch

  • SageOrums Orums (@SageOrums) reported

    Maybe Microsoft can actually fix #overwatch 🤔

  • IxDOMINATExYOU Brad (@IxDOMINATExYOU) reported

    @j1991_david If you don’t think a majority of Activision titles are going to be exclusive to the xbox ecosystem I don’t know what to tell you. Games like Spyro, Crash, Diablo just to name a few. Games like overwatch 2 I think could see continued play on PlayStation and Cod we will have 1/2

  • lilrizk Lil Rizky (@lilrizk) reported

    @yorksrover @Gazondaily @Shpeshal_Nick It's clever but also disingenuous if there's other motivations and intentions behind thr wording. He didn't say this for crash or overwatch 2 or diablo 5 or the next spyro. It was cod, specifically meaning the others are most certainly exclusives.

  • MudkipRed RedMudkip (@MudkipRed) reported

    Top 5 Overwatch heroes you hate! 1) Roadhog - always get that 1 tank player in my game who insta locks hog and blames everyone else. 2) Doomfist - can one punk people 3) Brig - unknown 4) Echo - broken character 5) Junkrat - can spam down hallways, much skill…

  • vMystfy ` (@vMystfy) reported

    CSGO overwatch is so broken so i can just ban random people and they lose there account and money

  • ELegend76 Epic_Legend76 (@ELegend76) reported

    @BenjiSales I mean I figure games like COD, Crash, and Spyro would still come on PlayStation. Just not exclusively. Hope that goes the same with Overwatch 2

  • Airwick_gamez08 Erik🐝 (@Airwick_gamez08) reported

    Even @Microsoft can’t fix the cancer of the overwatch community

  • JnegativGaming Jasen Minus (@JnegativGaming) reported

    @TheTrueSaltKing Wouldn't be surprised because vanguard is terrible. But the next basic call of duty will still sell. In war zone is still played like hotcakes. And if Microsoft can help clear up their internal issues. Overwatch 2. The next Diablo they'll be all right.

  • Debulover2 Debulover (@Debulover2) reported

    @WhimsuTy They won't lose COD, Overwatch or even Crash Bandicoot. The first two are too big that they will be given the Minecraft treatment. Crash it too associated with Playstation that Microsoft won't want bad publicity if they try to make Crash Xbox exclusive.

  • xXRedwaveXx R (@xXRedwaveXx) reported

    @QuazarTheOne @MoparSkili @Colteastwood Phill never said new COD will be on ps. And what about the other ips and studios.. MS just got 37 ip from this deal and many studios.. They can even now develop new ips with this many studios New spyro crash overwatch and many many games will never be on ps Like bethesda games.

  • revolutionwifi Minneapolite (@revolutionwifi) reported

    @radzima @Xbox Halo, Gears of War, etc. no issue w/ those being Xbox exclusives bc they always have been. CoD, Overwatch, Fallout, Elder Scrolls, and others that were cross platform and won’t be moving forward is an issue. MS is trying to buy market share and force consumers to their platform
